Omschrijving

Camus Extra Old Borderies Cognac

Prepare to experience a blend of the finest eaux-de-vie from the smallest terroir in the Cognac region. The Camus XO Borderies Cognac is a single cru blend from the Borderies terroir, which is famous for its long finish and full bodied, rounded flavor. It is currently the only single Borderies growth Cognac for sale worldwide, and for that reason has caught the attention of many Cognac lovers, and winning multiple awards for the simplicity in its innovation. The aromatic and velvet quality of a fine Borderies blend is what makes this Cognac a true champion. The process of a Camus Cognac is that the spirits are distilled on the lees, and then when ready, are aged in Limousin oak barrels for many years. An Extra Old Cognac, all of the eaux-de-vie are at least 10 years old and require years of careful supervision, so that the Cellar Master knows the exact moment to bottle their magic.

The Camus Cognac house are one of the few large maisons that have managed to remain entirely family-run. Their family estate, Plessis, is located in the heart of the Borderies region, and thanks to a series of fortunate land acquisitions, they have got to know the terroir and its qualities better than most. Jean Paul Camus guides the maison’s philosophy, and it is he who spotted the potential of the Borderies cru early on.

How to enjoy Camus Extra Old Borderies

It is best enjoyed on the rocks, or neat to really bring out the velvety flavors and aromas. The presentation of this Cognac is very similar to the other XO from Camus, with a voluptuous decanter. However what distinguishes the XO Borderies from the rest is the ‘corrugated’ effect of the glass, and translucent glass that creates a feminine shell shape. It comes in a beautiful cream box with gold embellishment.

Camus XO Borderies Awards

Praised for its unique character hailing from one single cru, it has won a number of awards including:

  • Gold medal at the World Spirit Awards 2009
  • Gold medal in the XO Ultra Premium category in the 2017 Cognac Masters

my favorite

This camus borderies XO is my favorite cognac. It's not cheap, but you get it. I have to compare with more borderies.
The same but VSOP is similar, but it's the time in the oak, which works on the one so nicely. Real deepness.
For me, this one is one of the best in value for money.

Special XO

A beautiful gold amber Cognac. Aroma is floral with notes of dark fruit, oak and almond. Palate follows the aroma with a long fruity oak finish.

I love it and need to pair it with after dinner delicacies to soften the slight aftertaste roughness. Others might value this as a desirable “bite”. I am very pleased.


Over Camus Cognac

Sinds 1863 hebben vijf generaties van de Camus-familie een eenduidige passie gekweekt voor het maken van geweldige Cognac met hun eigen stijl. Met 180 hectare grond in de kleinste en zeldzaamste AOC cru - de Borderies - is de Camus-familie altijd diepgaand betrokken geweest bij het maken en distilleren van wijn. Het is deze onbreekbare band tussen het land, de tradities en de mensen die erop wonen die hen helpt om prachtige Cognacs te maken. Vandaag de dag is het Cyril Camus die de drager is van alle familietradities en toeziet op de onbetwiste kwaliteit van Camus Cognac. Exportontwikkeling en productontwikkeling staan bovenaan het lijstje, met een passie voor innovatie. Cyril Camus heeft het interieur van het Cognac huis volledig gemoderniseerd en vertrouwt op een frisse nieuwe kijk op Cognac voor de nieuwe eeuw. In plaats van leer, hout en fluweel in bruintinten kiest hij voor lichte kleuren en een combinatie van traditie en modern design.
